Davis apologizes for payments

A story on the Buffalo News website this afternoon features congressional candidate Jack Davis apologizing for $10,000 in payments to the wives of the chairmen of the Erie and Monroe County Independence Party.

"I am severing my relationships with the consultants in question and apologize for my part in the spectacle," he is quoted as saying the the News piece.

The story also states that the payments have been an issue since July 18th, when the Buffalo News first reported them ...

Of course, that's not taking into account the fact that it was an issue before that ... because the Buffalo News was scooped by local blogger Buffalo Pundit.

The News' refusal to believe that they're not the only media outlet in WNY is really frustrating at times.
